I just realized I have never made an actual thread for my grow, I just posted pics in my album so here goes nothing.
I am an Oregon resident and legal card holder and this is my first time growing. My grow room is 4.5' wide by 10' long by 8' high and I am currently using two 400 watt Ceramic Metal Halides (CMH)
over six plants in five gallon Smart Pots
using Roots Organics
organic soil and nutes. I have a Can fan with a carbon filter and an 18" oscillating fan. Nothing too fancy, I wanted to keep it simple for my first attempt.
I started on August 1st with an eight tube T5 florescent bank and 11 sprouts.
I started with a five pack of Nirvana feminized White Castle, a 10 pack of Nirvana Northern Lights and a 10 pack of Tiki Seed Bank Bella Ciao. Oh yeah also received 5 free seeds marked FreeeBee FreeP's (PPP), if anyone has any idea of what they are please let me know
I germinated two of the White Castle, five of the Northern Lights and five Bella Ciao and all but one of them popped. I had a couple of small issues with fungus gnats and over watering/fertilizing but thanks to MynameStitch and other wonderful IC members I got my shit correct.
On October 5th I removed the T5 floros and started using a 400 watt CMH rig which I am very happy with.
On October 17th I transplanted from 3 gallon Smart Pots to 5 gallon ones.
On October 18th I switched to 12/12 light cycle.
On October 20th I added a second 400 watt CMH setup.
It is now November 15th and I am at 4 weeks of flower with about 4 weeks left on the Bella Ciaos and about 5 weeks left for the White Castles and Northern Lights.
To read my story in pictures go to my ICMag album
and go backwards but I will post some in this thread and keep it updated.
Thanks for reading
